I don't have many specific requirements, just shoes that will last more than a year of regular use (does such a thing exist these days?), have decent grip in...

Re: The tyre amnesty thread - please join!

Good idea, I'll have a dig around the garage to see what I have.

I'd take that Barzo off your hands if it's black/grey? If it's new then happy to pay something for it.

Not sure I need a huge one Ton - is it like the Hunka XL? Also sounds like it might be quite heavy?

WTD Bivvy Bag

Decided to try a bivvy bag again, probably along with a tarp once midgie season is over. I don't suppose anyone has one in good condition that's now surplus to requirements? Thanks

Re: Accuracy of elevation given in OS Maps app

Yeah, I wouldn't expect it to be spot on by any means, but felt 50m difference was quite a lot! I know the route well that I took, but i...

Accuracy of elevation given in OS Maps app

Like many on here, I moved over from Viewranger to the premium OS Maps on my smartphone and over the weekend used the route mapping for the first time on a hike on Arran. At one point my elevation was showing as 852m, but my position was showing right on the 800m contour in 1:25k, (which based on my...
